Dancing On Ice Movie Week: the best of the best
Who stood out on Sunday night's show?
So we waved goodbye on Sunday to Mark Rhodes and Frankie but it wasn't all bad. Movie Week always manages to expose who's lacking in skill as well as showcasing the top talent and let's not forget the spectacular costumes. Who gave an Oscar winning performance?
Top scorer Jorgie Porter delivered an amazing performance once more. Her performance to 9 to 5 by Dolly Parton was full of energy, though it would have been nice to see her skate more. The routine was packed with tricks but I missed her working the rink, her poise when travelling is impressive.
That aside, her acting ability shone through and her musicality was excellent. The crowd were on their feet clapping along and the dance was as crowd pleasing as the track.
The only disappointment was that she couldn't nail the sit lift on the night. It has to be gutting when you've executed a move perfectly in rehearsals but you lose it when it counts.
Hmmm... okay, I know Matthew scored well but that's pretty much the only reason he's here this week. The white suit did nothing for me compared to last week's black leathers and the same can be said for the routine. His first performance had so much punch and I was hoping that he'd hold on to that as the weeks go by - I was disappointed.
Don't get me wrong, he captured the feel of the movie and the crowd loved 'pointing' along to Nightfever but for me, it was just a little weak... and camp. Judge Louie Spence was the first to say that mid-tempo numbers can be a little boring and he was right.
Matthew's enthusiasm seemed to have slowed along with the tempo, his synchronicity was off and he just didn't seem as comfortable. Fingers crossed he'll come back fighting.
The surprise of the night was Top Gun Chico. He may not have scored as highly as Matthew and Jorgie but he's really coming into his own. It was great to see him take a performance seriously and show off his romantic side as this time around there was no comedic element.
You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin' was a perfect choice for Movie Week and frankly, I enjoyed this performance the most. The costumes were genius and as he gracefully lifted Jodeyne with ease, I couldn't help but think of Berlin's Take My Breath Away. They captured the essence of the film and that was the whole point.
He's one to watch that's for sure. He has amazing core strength and his skating skills are going from strength to strength. Frankly, he deserved higher marks than last week.
